Dr. Pulst’s research is focused on developing therapeutics for inherited diseases of the nervous system such as spinocerebellar ataxias, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and Parkinson’s disease. Dr. Pulst’s team has made significant contributions in understanding the mechanisms involved in spinocerebellar ataxias, as well as translating these discoveries into novel treatments. This research program aims to build on these achievements and apply a multi-dimensional approach to define novel pathogenic mechanisms that underlie the death of adult nerve cells across different diseases.
